Guy Holmes went to Palmer’s School, at Grays, in Essex. He played as right back for Ilford FC and was an English amateur international. In the 1920s and 30s, Ilford FC was one of the most successful clubs in the Isthmian League and advanced to three FA Amateur Cup finals, winning two of them. Whilst Ilford appeared in three FA Amateur Cup finals in the 1920s and 30s, Holmes, however, appeared in just one, the defeat in a replay by Corinthians in 1936 when Holmes was Ilford’s captain. A knee injury ended Holmes’ career in 1938.
